Korn call for BP boycott !





Korn will boycott BP products on their upcoming tour to protest against the company's failure to control their oil leak into the Gulf of Mexico which has resulted in the death of unknown amounts of organisms in the region.

And the band are encouraging their fans and other artists to follow their lead.

Frontman Jonathan Davis says: "The daily images are hard to watch. We need to do our part to let BP know there are consequences for causing something like this.

Wow!
Is this the first movement that will get media attention about the BP boycott?
I'm really happy a known group of people get this kind of thinking! We all tought of it here, yes. But we don't alot of influence on the outside ... These guys do!!

I hope Korn will lead a good battle toward people of BP!



"The most costly their punishment, the most money they will spend to make sure disasters like this don't happen again. It's plain and simple capitalism."




BP's share value has plummeted after repeated attempts to stem the flow of oil failed. The company's Deepwater Horizon oil platform exploded and sank in April, killing 11 workers, and since then oil has been pouring into the Gulf of Mexico, with independent experts suggesting BP are being conservative about the scale of the leak.

BP says: "The company is not aware or any reason which justifies this share price movement."



Whatcha think?


EDIT: It seems 2 thread were created, can you delete one of them,mods, please? Thanks and sorry for this, I don't know what happened!

I like the sentiment, but the bus is totally being missed, again.

I understand, but I think it's the image they are sending to other people, the image that we are doing nothing about those who screwed up our water! I guess the other company will have their turns?!

Korn is lame. Their idea to boycott is not.
Whatever motivates people I guess, huh?!
Personally I know quite a few people that have
been boycotting for a while now. I don't think
Korn is the first at anything, including horrible,
metal music. (or whatever they are).

Korn lame. Boycott not.

But, again, the other companies are as, if not more responsible. Boycotting BP is just creating a scapegoat, and if you'll notice, the scapegoat is the only one that is not an american company.....hmmmm......

Boycotting BP is just creating a scapegoat,

A scapegoat that owns and is responsible for 65% of the rig in question!


and if you'll notice, the scapegoat is the only one that is not an american company

They did a story on CNN International yesterday in which they said that there is a Korean and a Japanese company that owns/has invested in or whatever in the other 35% of the rig. So, BP getting blamed isn't about keeping the American companies "safe".

They are the "scapegoat" because they were the company whose name is attached to the largest part of the rig.

We don't want to boycott BP because it would only hurt the small business owners and the little guys just trying to get by. Think about it... BP is most likely "too big to fail" so our tax dollars would only go to lining the executives/investors pockets while the small business owners who own the little gas station on the corner would lose out on your patronage.

I know. Just messing. Can't stand em.
Boycott is necessary. Also they can reach
out to their fans. That is a bonus.

Here's the vid

Korn Oildale


Regardless of my opinion of Korn, which I do dig some of their stuff, I am glad to see those with a bit of potential influence and notoriety come forth to express themselves on the matter. Are they the first band to do this, regarding this spill?

airspoon has a good point too about boycotting hurting some small business owners, so I'm on the fence with that. We can also volunteer services or money, and write to/call our leaders as well as BP. Or shout it out online!

Peace

Is boycotting BP really the wisest thing to do? Americans own upto 40% of that Company.

Trying to hurt it financially seems daft when they are being made to pay for the clean up operation and pay compensation to those that loose business due to it. These costs may be needed to be paid out by BP, rightly so for years.

It seems people are out for revenge, why not petition the White House in order to get better saftey standards for all offshore oil operations, that's run by an independant source?

yea, What a great Idea. Lets put another 500,000 to a million out of work... let's close down more store fronts and Gas Stations. You know cause BP did this on purpose, and everybody should suffer for their screw up. Let's hurt everybody who would dare own BP stock... let's ruin all the lives of all the Families who depend of BP for a living... So go ahead and Boycott with Korn(who Suck ) Bunch of Whinny losers...

I say screw the American families for giving money to BP. They knew what was going on the moment they became shareholders.

I agree.. But when you think about the people who didn't had the choice.. it's a very hard decision that I'm not in the position to take

keep the pressure on eventually they will declare barkrupty and the victims will get nothing........Obamam is using this to bolster public support , should the rest of the world boycott usa.corp , for all the toxic banking debts it released on the world causing this finacial crisis?

Or should he have temporarily suspended the act which stops non US ship, and nonUS crews from helping with the clear up, you do know about that ?I forget the name of the law but at least bush suspended it during katrina......
